The finalists were honored at a dinner on Thursday, January 25, 2018, at the Joseph A. Floreano Rochester Riverside Convention Center.

Mary is the Executive Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer of iuvo BioScience. She has been a Board member for Starbridge (and previously The Advocacy Center) for nearly ten years.

In her finalist profile, Mary spoke about the importance of empowering and recognizing women:

“Empowerment enables women to realize their full potential as impactful leaders and makes barriers previously insurmountable now achievable. Recognizing the successes of women provides visible, inspiring role models, which are considered critical for girls entering adulthood.”

We at Starbridge are appreciative of Mary’s longstanding commitment of her time and talents to our Board, serving on multiple committees and as Chair-Elect for 2018, and for her support of Starbridge in general. Congratulations, Mary!
